Terrell Gausha is a boxer competing at the 2012 London Summer Olympics for the USA.

erell Gausha made the U.S. Olympic team after qualifying at the May Americas Tournament in Rio de Janeiro. "All the pressure I endured and hard work that I put in has paid off and God is great," Gausha told USA Boxing following the event. "Dreams really do come true. I grew a lot over the last year and I saw what it took to get to this point so the timing was right for me."

Not only did Gausha qualify in Rio, he made it all the way to the finals. In the gold medal match Gausha found himself up against Junior Castillo of the Dominican Republic, an experienced fighter who, like Gausha, had already qualified for the Games. The American took the fight. 6-2, and returned stateside as a likely podium contender for London, despite having just one international medal to his name.

A 2005 graduate of Glenville High School in Cleveland, Ohio, Gausha has been in the sport since the age of 10. The Cleveland born fighter has long been doing his hometown proud, winning five Cleveland Golden Gloves championships.

After losing at the Olympic Trials in 2011, Gausha chose to depart for Los Angeles and join the L.A. Matadors, a team on the World Series of Boxing circuit. Following the season he returned to the U.S. amateur scene, competing at the 2012 National Championships with the hopes of making the London team. Winning against Jesse Hart in a double tiebreaker, 3-2 allowed Gausha the opportunity to represent the U.S. at the Rio tournament, where he beat a field of accomplished fighters to clinch a berth to London.

True to his roots, Gausha has been training at his hometown East Cleveland gym, the MLK Center, in preparation for the Games. His trainer/coach Renard Safo has been working with Gausha for the last five years, though the two took a break last year with Gausha on the west coast. Safo works full-time as a United States Postal Carrier.
